Mission Statement

The Y is a charitable organization committed to strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to flourish in spirit, mind and body. Everything we do is guided by our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.


Together we transform lives for brighter futures. We believe that we each deserve the opportunity to achieve our highest potential, live a meaningful life and create a brighter future. Our programs are focused on key areas:

  • Nurture confident kids - all children need opportunities to help them realize their potential. At the Y, children develop self-esteem, independence and leadership in a safe, nurturing environment.
  • Inspire improved health - being healthy in spirit, mind and body allows everyone to live life to its fullest. Healthy living is core to the Y's mission. Everyday, individuals of all ages, abilities and backgrounds are encouraged to live active lives and be their best selves for a brighter outlook.
  • Foster social connections - we improve lives by providing financial assistance to qualifying individuals and families, so that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We also give back to neighbors through subsidized programs that create a sense of connectedness and hope for those who need it most - all to build a brighter community.
